  • You can do it using Visual studio. You will need to build the list and deploy it as a feature. For the list, create the new form, edit form and display form. 

    You can generate an unique guid when creating a new item each item, which can be used as a reference number. 

     

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    You can create a column of type "Calculated" and create a formula based on your requirement (you can use ID column to provide unique reference number to items within the list).

    Regards.

  • Well, I guess he was trying to load the new GUID even before a new item is created. The calculated column works after the item has been created and not before.
